Liam Kelly double fires through the pain

Sun 13 December 2020 | 9:16

Coventry manager Mark Robins believes he had made the right decision when he asked Captain Liam Kelly to play through the pain after he scored the winner against Wycombe.

Sky Blues skipper

Liam Kelly

scored his first Coventry goal in over two years and he went on to double his tally deep into first-half stoppage time, before being replaced, to earn

Coventry

their first away win of the season.

Wycombe

pulled one back from the spot, as Joe Jacobson converted the penalty in the 61st minute of the game.

Scott Kashket thought he had crowned the comeback, but his injury-time equalizer ruled out for offside.

Robins said: “He’s got up to the edge of the box and hit it true because he can, that’s just belief.

“He’s hit it, it’s gone in, we’re 1-0 up and then he’s injured, really, wants to come off and I’ve asked him to stay on because obviously that takes away an opportunity to make a substitution.

“He did and with that he’s got what turned out to be the winning goal.

“It’s bittersweet for him and for us because we’ll miss him for a period of time now, but ultimately it’s a really good three points for us.
